republican senator marco rubio was not so pleased saying ispart quote this legislation is half-baked and seriously flawed. if actually proposed the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress. i want to bring in ryan grim. good to see both of you. >> thanks. >> thanks for having me. >> ryan, white house chief of state. said the white house wanted to be ready with a backup plan. take a listen. >> we have not proposed anything to capitol hill yet. we have a bill. we are doing what the president said we would do last month in las vegas which is we are preparing. we are going to be ready. we have developed the proposals so we have them in a position to succeed. >> if immigration reform has bipartisan support why would the white house feel compelled to fluke their own plan. >> this is the legacy of health care reform. the white house is still scarred from the dramatic experience of watching max baucus spend months haggling with olympia snowe in a room in a senatet office building and also derailed health care reform. that is the only thing that allowed it to drag out over
rubio would have said, you want to know what the state of the union is? let me tell you what the state of the union is. average income of americans has dropped 5%. not since barack obama became president of the united states, but since the recession ended. our economy's in transition. more americans are being left behind. senior citizens aren't going to be assured of these entitlement programs for long. we're $6 trillion deeper in debt today than we were when barack obama became president. barack obama's allowed the national debt to go up by 60% himself since he was president. 4 million more americans are out of work today than were working when barack obama became president. we've got the weakest recovery in over 70 years with barack obama as president of the united states. it is time to think big. it is time to go long. it is time to come together. why couldn't anybody in washington say that last night? >> and there was a lack of urgency to it. there was a sense that -- it was a little bit -- so much depends on what the baseline is. and the president was almost saying things are impr
, rubio, the tea party response with paul. many believe that this is another indication of a divide if you will within the republican party. i want to play what senator paul had to say on marco rubio. let's play it. >> there's a lot of energy from the tea party and consider themselves mostly republican, they will chastise even the republican establishment so they want an independent voice. i don't see it as necessarily divisive. i won't say anything that marco rubio is wrong. this isn't about he and i. this is about the tea party. >> so he won't say marco rubio is wrong but he might not say he's right. so here we have the second story line. >> exactly. >> of the night here. is this, though, really a rubio versus rand paul? >> i think it could be a foreshadow of something in four years to tell you the truth. no. i think at a time when republicans really needed to show a unified front, this is doing exactly the opposite. i think a lot of people in washington, i know a lot of journalists will tune in to -- >> we just lost her mid sentence. let's bring in chris. there was an article yesterday
on tougher gun laws. >>> watergate, marco rubio and the bottle. did that really just happen? and beyonce's new film, "life is but a dream." >> people see celebrities and they have money and fame, but i'm a human being. i cry. i get scared. i get nervous, just like everyone else. >> reporter: we are on the red carpet for the l.a. premiere. find out why oprah says this is a game changer. >> this "life is but a dream" is so fiercely empowering. "newsro" >>> good morning, thank you so much for being with me. i'm carol costello. we begin in southern california where an accused killer ex-cop is believed dead, his reign of terror over. police say it will take days to confirm that a body found inside this cabin is actually christopher dorner, the former los angeles cop who had vowed deadly vengeance for his firing. this is video from outside the cabin from cbs. he was spotted yesterday near big bear lake. he crashed a stolen car and then carjacked another vehicle from a camp ranger who happened to be on the scene. >> he came up to me with his gun pointed at me and i stopped my truck, put it in p

of most democrats. >> he has to work in a bipartisan way. senator rubio hasn't been invited to the white house yet to talk about immigration reform is a problem. he needs to start working -- he needs to start doing it now. also -- >> isn't bipartisanship a dream of the 'minutes at this point? we have not seen very much of that in this congress at all. no matter what the president says, they are going to oppose him. >> you have a senate right now who bipartisan framework, it is -- already out there. if the president could start getting behind it and actually start doing internal things. we had weekly meet wings coalition groups, bipartisanship, to bring people together. that's not happening now. >> did you keep saying this is the thing we did the last time we had a colossal failure in trying to get the bill passed. why should that persuade me that's the thing to do again? >> he has to at least do that if we are going to get to the other side. he has to be part of that. >> i mean, i think it is false to -- act like immigration reform hinges on -- it is really congress and senate and really
. >>> the second sidebar story of tomorrow night will be the spot light for a republican rising star marco rubio. he gives the response to the president. is he the long-term answer the gop has been waiting for? let's bring back our gaggle. susan, you know, these responses say they're fraught with peril, but to me there was a no more often choice. it could have been weird had they gone any other direction. >> so is he the barack obama of the republican party? he's young, he helps address that are diversity problem, which is a really serious one. he's acceptable to the tea party folks, he talks in a way that is not scary or doesn't off-put people who are in the middle. so he is a guy with some enormous promise. >> but this is style versus substance? right now the republican party's answers to its problems are we're going to change the face, change some of our phraseology, but we're not changing substance yet? >> we're going to wait. >> one more election before we start changing. >> i think for rubio, he'll be able to deliver a good speech. he's been able to prove that time and again like at the rn
. >>> meanwhile, marco rubio, mr. gulp fiction himself, is out praising freshman senator ted cruz and tweeting happy to see ted cruz came to d.c. to make a difference, not just make some friends. yes, rubio thinks this guy is a super star. >> we need to eliminate unnecessary institutions. >> we are living in the days of atlas shrubs. >> i will never support new taxes. period. the end. >> i think it's time for some more meetings. joining me now are angela rye and dana millbank. is this really the master plan to save the party? >> you know, it's just so hard to keep abreast of all of ted cruz's out rages. he's been on the job for six weeks and he's already sort of rivaling joe mccarthy. you know, in fairness to karl rove, he is telling the republicans what they need to hear. and i suspect republican leaders would like to do it. the problem is you can see like a guy from ted cruz, there's no way to control him. he has this swollen sense of his own importance. and he's made -- look, obviously, he's infur rating the democrats. but even members of his own party are starting to get sore about this. t
over the weekend. senator marco rubio called it "half baked and seriously flawed." the white house says it's a backup plan in case others stumble in theirests. >> reporter: immigration is one of the issues that sparks democrats and republicans. while eight senators are finishing a bipartisan bill, "usa today" reveals the white house has been working on a backup plan if the current efforts fall apart. >> if those do not work out, then we'll have an option that will be ready to put out there. >> reporter: president obama's chief of staff says the white house proposal would bolster border security and include a path to citizenship for this nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants. republicans say any plan with the president's name on it is bound to fail. >> of course it will. and that's why we are working together, republicans and democrats. by the way, he's had no communications with republicans on the issue, unlike the previous four presidents that i've dealt with. >> reporter: senator john mccain is one of the so-called gang of eight lawmakers working on the bipartisan bill. so is fl
that marco rubio thing. they should have been all over it. stay hydrated. >> stay hydrated, my friend. >> lee, what did you learn? >> i learned that women are not only doing wonderful things in the board room, but elsewhere, they are a lower credit risk for lenders. >> lower credit risk. >> i thought it was very interesting. >> mika, let me ask you, as you were jetting across the atlantic and watching on your big screen, how big on your goldstream, how big is the hdtv? 40 inches or so? >> this joke has been running for five years. i think it's time to debunk it. >> it never gets old. >> it doesn't get old to you? funny thing is, you're the elitist. that's what i've learned today. what'd you learn? >> zing! >> you're pretty good at calling out people. i learned that! i learned that, let's see, wayne lapierre is extreme on guns and paul krugman is extreme on debt. they sort of occupy their own alternative universeses and the question is whether the republicans are going to have the guts to stand up to lapierre and whether democrats will be strong enough to walk away from krugman. but we'll see
is winning this battle for talent, which is i'm glad the president talked about it last night. senator rubio talked about it as well. i think it got the biggest ovation of the night from republicans and democrats. we need to come together and pass immigration reform. >> we heard from some small business people last night via twit tore a large degree, who said the immigration part is great, not so much on the minimum wage part. i wonder how much of an offset that might be to a small business person? >> a lot of things were talked about. it was an hour speech. there was a lot of components to it. i was encouraged when the president talked about they were building the economy. and solving the immigration issue. particularly from president obama and senator rubio, on the high-skilled immigration reform. i view it as a good night. and a hearing in the senate around immigration reformt. and this afternoon we'll hear more from the senators introducing that. we're making good progress. there's a lot of work to be done. immigration has always been a difficult, sensitive issue. it will require broad b
in the gop between washington and non-washington republicans. we pointed out yesterday, rubio's state of the union response was similar to any speech you'd hear from mourm moi mitt romney in twelve, except with the exception of his personal story. on the other hand, look at what republican governors are saying. people like louisiana's bobby jindal or new jersey's chris christie, arguing that the party should stop focusing so much on washington budget battles. even at times used washington conservatives as a punching bag. >> there's only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims. the house majority and their speaker, john boehner. >> we have seemed to have an obsession with government bookkeeping. this is a rigged game and it is the wrong game for us to play. >> as we look ahead to 2016, rubio and the jindals and christies of the world represent two different schools of thinking in terms of how to rebrand the party and how to fight obama. >>> well, it's valentine's day, but love is not in the air, for anyone here in washington. what's new about that? up n
his budget. >> thank you very much. >>> republican senator marco rubio gave the republican response to the state of the union address. among republican voters who took the dial test, wait to measure if they like what he's saying, rubio scored the biggest points when he talked about big government. >> the idea more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard working middle class taxpayers an old idea that's failed every timist been tried. more government won't help you get ahead. it will hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunities. it's going to limit them. and more government isn't going to inspire new ideas. new businesses, and new private-sector jobs. it's going to create uncertainty. >> republican senator rand paul gave the tea party response and chastised both parties for spending too much. he also talked about limiting the reach of the federal government. >> what america needs is not robin hood but adam smith. in the year we won our independence, adam smith described what creates the wealth of nations, he described a limited gover
on immigration reform. but marco rubio within hours released a statement saying the president's plan is dead on arrival. that is evis enraging the immign debate. the white house saying it does seem as though the process is moving forward. just to put this in larger context. if you look at the debates on the horizon and the sequester of gun control. they feel it has the best chance of passing because of the 2012 race where the president got the large majority of latino voters. again, this leak certainly enflaming the debate. >> kristen, thank you. emily, you heard kristen talk about rubio's statement. here is the detail of the osedpn arrival and leaving us with a broken system for years to come. emily, what is the response to that tell you? >> it is a pretty hot response. in what has been so far a measured sense of negotiation going on in the senate. i hope the white house would keep the volume lower on this and make sure that cooler heads prevail. it is when you get that bipartisan group of senators working together that you get some product that congress can pass. that is the only place tha
the rhetoric. lou: is 013. your gang of eight. a bipartisan solution. and amongst those leaders is marco rubio. hispanic, american, u.s. senar, smart fellow, and he says he can get that done as long as border security is there. >> absolutely. lou: the use of -- so that hispanic americans who are voting, 70 percent, for president obama? >> they used to vote for the government. lou: look, i would love to sit and talk with you about 2006, 2000 -- 1986 we have limited time. >> sure. lou: would you gng to do? >> so, hispanics by and large support the border enforcement. we're not talking about the people who say we want open borders. one and enforced border. lou: i said secure borders. quite a difference. >> secure the borders. hispanics want to secure the borders. >> hispanics want gender politics not to be the one who decides to back weather up the borders secure? >> i think it's fair enough. all americans think we need to have a definition of what a secure border is. and i don't think that the federal government should be the one, you know,. lou: you have to come back and join this year. you hav
rubio, one of the republican leaders of that gain was unequivocal in announcing the president's intervention in what until this weekend has been a promising approach to new immigration legislation. this so-called leak of the president's plan was politically explosive. it may have ended the process. if actually propose to the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress, leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come. white house officials today clumsily insisted that the league draft did not come from them. the draft, including an 8-year path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country and a window as small as two years for those who were brought here as children. but another gang of eight member, senator john mccain dismisses the white house claims today of innocence and the release of that draft. now the awkward walk back of the president's initiative. senator mccain questions the president's desire to actually, sincerely fix the broken legal and illegal immigration system. >> leaks don't happen in washingt
in the past couple years, the marco rubio will be delivering the remarks after the president, the republican side of things. he is a very smart guy but i would think if he was really inventive he might go back to a report issued by the president of the united states. this report, the president's plan for economic growth was issued in 2011, september. he talks about the principles for tax reform. this is the president talking. he says, lower tax rates. a little steve forbesish. the tax system should be simplified and work for all americans with lower individual and corporate tax rates and fewer brackets. this is the president talking. why doesn't marco rubio put this up and say, mr. president, we're with you, 100%. we agree what you said back in 2011? >> he might do so. actually the most we could hope from this president is doing something, david, in terms of reducing corporate tax rates. everyone now knows, even democrats, it is the highest in the developed world. if you put something constructive there, that would be a real blockbuster but i don't see any scenes of it. maybe he will sure ri
'm going to say. goes to senator marco rubio. you have to feel for the guy. listen he is 41. it is his time to shine. deliver the official gop rebuttal to the president's state of the union. a huge moment! and this happens. >> nothing is frustrated me more than false choices like the one the president laid out tonight. the choice isn't just between big government or big business? melissa: oh. poor guy. i got to tell you. i like him better today. i feel like he is a human being. he is not plastic. like every other politician. >> like the bottle. >> look at you, julie. melissa: come on! he is a real person now he is not some slickster. >> no, no. you're right. i just watched that again, looked like a hostage video. melissa: oh. >> my wife by the way concurs exactly. melissa, it made him look human. julie you admitted to me you had a secret crush on marco rubio. >> not so secret anymore, tony. thanks for telling everyone. >> media had a funny line. more than just reaching for the water. he was staring at the camera like it was going to steal his watch. that was probably a better description. d
to the state of the union republican rebuttal. we thought that senator marco rubio was a tea party favorite. but then you had senator rand paul also taking to the stage in the wake of marco rubio. is senator rubio no longer conservative enough. >> no, that's absolutely not true. he is a tea party conservative. but the republican party doesn't represent all of us. we're not an arm of the republican party and they certainly do not speak for us. we are still here. we're engaged. people are working across the country. and though you may not see the big rallies that you saw back in 2009 and 2010, we've matured. i call it tea party 2.0. and we're actually out there working to effect change and we still have a voice. and that's exactly why we asked senator rand paul to give the tea party response to the state of the union. and it was a huge success. everybody has supported what he said that night. and it's great. it was a historic night to have two tea party conservative senators responding to the president of the united states and his state of the union address. that's historic. so anytime that w

residents. marco rubio had this to say. >> it would be dead on arrival in congress, leaving us with unsecured orders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come. no surprise. lou dobbs is here and has something to say about this. lou: i am not riled up, by the way, at all. this is entirely to be expected. the bipartisan plan, which they almost have complete. they have not been paying attention for the past four and a half years. this is a partisan issue. the republicans clamoring as best they are darling little hearts can do to catch up. they are not doing so. i am not using it as a majority. the only way in which they can possibly keep up with the democrats in gaining the votes of hispanic americans, sensibly, at least, is to give away more than the democrats. the republicans, however, run a huge risk. that is that they will all spend so much of their base that they cannot possibly make up for that within 11 billion group of illegal immigrants or 40 million hispanic americans in this country. ashley: what do the republicans do? they are caught literally between a r

marco rubio, senator ted crews, a host of others. i mean, these are republicans. how do you -- how you deal with that? >> we've worked a lot with the senate committee across the country. trying to secure the border. watch over all the legal system. want to have a guest worker program. of it -- and e verification system, and earn legal status. lou: not citizenship. >> pass the citizenship. it's a myth. people think that all the sudden we will have people come forward and then all the sudden. lou: are talking about pple as if there's some sort -- he talked about people throwing the were illegal around. people don't understand this and that. that is the kind of elitist view of americans that was creating a lot of problems for the republican party which seems to have a very narrow establish a base and then all but nonexistent ground operation to create voters. that seems like one of the problems you and i should talk about here. >> the problem in there. we talk to voters. we talk to people. most people a very pragmatic about what we should do about fixing our immigration system. they want
